Dorothy Counts-Scoggins

Record #:
Scoggins’ efforts to end school segregation in Charlotte, started at Harding High School in 1957, was nurtured by parents who promoted equal treatment for all. Her efforts, which helped to generate a public school system among the most diverse in America, face recent challenges such as racist groups also targeting Latino students. Ongoing efforts to restore diversity and equity, which resulted in her becoming a 2017 Charlottean of the Year award recipient, include a mentoring program at Garinger High School.
